'Čujanová-Jílková E, 1990: Some Peculiar Features of the Middle Bronze Age Barrow Culture in West Bohemia and in its Western Vicinity. Anthropologie (Brno) 28, 2-3: 207-211'.
Besides normal cremation and inhumation burials, mostly totally weathered, the West Bohemian Barrow culture developed a special method of buriyng only a part of the skeleton, namely bones of the skull together with fragments of the long bones, in either cremated or uncremated state. In one case only bones of the upper part of the trunk were found. Small dumps of charred animal bones, or mixed animal and human bones with grave goods also appear. Similar cases can be found also in the Bavarian Barrow cultures from the Middle Bronze Age, and they are reflections of certain features characteristic of clan societies.
